Father's day

Happy father's day a day late! I wish I could have gotten this post out on time but I guess late is better than never?

It was fun celebrating Jeff on his first father's day. Lewis got him a new disc golf bag
We had a yummy breakfast of french toast, eggs, and bacon and just had a relaxing day as a family! Jeff has such a tender, caring heart and has been a wonderful father. He is looking forward to the many, many adventures he and Lew will have together. One day Lewis will be big enough to hold and throw a frisbee and too big to sit in the bag

When you become  a parent it is so much easier to understand the sacrifices and loving care your own parents gave to you. Thank you dad for being my protector, provider, and comforter for so many years and now for being my friend! I wouldn't be the amazing lady that I am today without you:)

3 Months old

3 months old and he has changed so much from the tiny little thing we brought home on March 15th

Now he's a happy, goofy, strong little boy!

grabbing his foot for the first time!

Crawling already! Just kidding, only practicing :)

goofy face
such a serious little guy sometimes

Lewis weighs in at around 13 pounds now and is the cutest little guy! Although the color right around his pupil has changed to a greenish brown the rest of his eye color is still the steely gray that it was when he was born. We can't tell if they are going to be blue or hazel!
Jeff and I just love "playing" with him: reading him books, talking to him, laying with him while he has his tummy time. Each week we go grocery shopping together; he is such a good shopping buddy! I plop him into the ergo when we get to the store and he just hangs out and looks around while I get the groceries.
 He is a very drooly baby and is constantly chewing on his hands and sucking on his fingers. Sometimes we will go in to get him up from his nap and he will be sucking his thumb! He has been wanting to stand a lot lately and pulls himself up to a seated position when we are holding him.
Last week he learned how to roll onto his tummy from his back! He usually sleeps on his stomach now for his naps. We put him down on his back and he immediately rolls over and falls asleep :)
We are so in love with our little man! He is the sweetest thing and bring so much joy to our days

Grill meals #1 and #2

Here are the two grill meals we have had so far. Both were fantastic! Another thing I love about grilling is the easy cleanup: absolutely no pots and pans to wash up after dinner
